CGMIX remains the official site of available type approved equipment; however the copies provided on this page will allow people to see the certificate in its entirety, including appendices and previous versions. The date columns give the dates from the most recent revision, not the original certificate. Any inquiries regarding BWMS equipment and operating limitations should be directed to the manufacturer.
A BWMS’s Type Approval Certificate (TAC) expiration date indicates the dates between which a BWMS must be manufactured. A type approved BWMS, which is manufactured within the TAC applicability dates, remains in compliance for the lifetime of the system, assuming it is operated and maintained in accordance with the listed Operation, Maintenance, and Safety Manual (OMSM). The TAC to which the BWMS was manufactured and approved should be stored onboard, regardless of the expiration date. The onboard TAC is only replaced upon modification of the BWMS to comply with a revised TAC.
